All summer long, the media touted Joe Biden’s lead in the polls.
Now that people are really paying attention to the election, however, everything seems to be shifting in Trump’s favor.
A new poll finds Trump overtaking Biden in the states of Florida, Arizona, and Georgia.
FOX News reports:
Trump with the edge over Biden in Arizona, Florida and Georgia battlegrounds: polls
New polls in three crucial general election battleground states show President Trump holding the edge over Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
The president tops Biden 51%-47% among likely voters in Florida and Trump holds a 1-point 49%-48% edge over the former vice president among likely voters in Arizona, according to ABC News/Washington Post public opinion surveys released on Wednesday.
The president’s margins in both polls are within the sampling error of plus or minus 4.5 percentage points, meaning the races are practically tied between the two candidates.
The president’s ahead of his Democratic challenger 48%-46% among likely voters in Georgia, according to a high voter turnout model in a Monmouth University survey that was also released on Wednesday. Trump’s 2-point edge is within the poll’s plus or minus 4.9% margin of error.
With 29 electoral votes at stake, Florida’s the largest of the traditional swing states.
Trump narrowly edged out 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to carry the state four years ago. President Obama also won the state by razor-thin margins in 2008 and 2012.
This is all very good news for the Trump campaign.
FL: likely voters split 51% for Trump to 47% for Biden, while registered voters split 47% for Trump to 48% for Biden.
AZ: likely voters split 49% for Trump to 48% for Biden while registered voters split 47% for Trump to 49% for Biden
